Change allows us to meet our surrounding circumstances and thereby to survive� Dinosaur Chase! is the fantastic new picture book by Benedict Blathwayt that allows small children�s imaginations to both soar and roar!

Fin and his dinosaur friends are playing - learning about the ways they can use their bodies. A gang of pre-historic bullies spoil the friends� games and Fin leads them a chase across vistas and views of his prehistoric panorama. Gradually, through a process of elimination as members of the gang discover they can�t jump, swim and climb, the numbers diminish until there is a literal cliff-hanger for hero Fin!

What happens next is wonderfully liberating as Fin spreads out his arms to discover feathers and thereby to find that he can fly. Two beautifully detailed double page spreads celebrate his first ascent.

Blathwayt will be familiar to readers for his popular �Little Red Train� series. What makes his books so accomplished is the multilayering of the stories. Each page of illustrations features detail to the n-th degree meaning readers can visit the book again and again each time discovering more.
